Butterfly sighting

Joshua Cullum

Location: 8 miles northwest of Janesville
Rock County

I was walking through our woods and noticed a comma sunning itself on the bark of some trees and sometimes flying to the ground to sun on the leaves. I got closer, and could tell that it was a Gray Comma (probably the one I saw the other day), so I continued to watch it. In a few minutes, I saw that another comma flew in, and after close inspection, realized it was a Gray Comma as well.
Realizing that this is the highest count for me in Rock County (maybe the highest count in this database?) I went inside to get the camera to get some photos. After coming back out, I saw that they were still there and I photographed both of them extensively. I have included some of the photos in the checklist. I will have to watch the commas closely this year to see if this is going to be a good year for Gray Commas.
